I started my postcard for the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge just after the revealing of the letter to be used but then the Paralympics began and I had to resume my summer of sport watching. It seems I have done very little else these past few months!
The current letter is "o" and I have chosen the word octagon. Like so many crafters I have a few (thousand) scraps left over from projects and it really is time I started dipping into them to justify the reason for having kept them. I cut the octagons from some scrap background pieces and over stamped them with stamps from a new Crafty Individuals plate that I won for a knock down price on the auction site. The background was brayered using some left over paint from a previous project and then stamped using Distress Ink. The dictionary definition was computer generated.
